Elegant Beach Wedding in Seaside, Florida

While we celebrate all sorts of styles and wedding personalities here at SMP, if we’re being honest…we fall the hardest for affairs that pay homage to the classics. Tradition with a hint of sparkle. Black tie with a glittery twist. And this wedding – photographed by Lauren Kinsey – is that, and so much more. Take a look here in the galleries too!

From Lauren Kinsey Fine Art Wedding PhotographyKelsey & Andrew are absolutely adorable together, and I loved photographing this beautiful wedding at Seaside, Florida.

Kelsey & Andrew moved to Japan almost immediately after the wedding, where Kelsey works as an English teacher for seventy five students from ages zero to thirteen in Tokushima, Japan.

From The Bride…Andrew and I went to the same Middle School, and most likely met in one of the classes we had together, though honestly we do not remember the first time we met each other. We love to go on long walks at night, so during one of our many walks, he stopped in front of a lake and told me to admire “how beautiful it was.” After that, he got down on one knee and proposed to me with a ring I had said I liked the most when we went ring “window-shopping” together around a month prior. I was so surprised and overjoyed! For the remainder of the walk I couldn’t wipe the grin off of my face!

We have a tradition of going to Seaside, Florida together every summer, so we thought a destination beach wedding would be the perfect venue to allow for maximum relaxation after the wedding, as well as would make a nice, nostalgic backdrop for our special day.

The thing I looked forward to the most was seeing my husband’s reaction to my dress! (And his reaction didn’t disappoint me; he was so moved that he cried!). I loved seeing my husband all done up and looking his best, I loved how our families and friends came together and were in such a good mood, I loved seeing all of our family members “get down” at the wedding after party and show us some of their best dance moves, I loved how random people cheered for us when they saw us make the walk back to our beach house together in our wedding attire, and I loved how the whole day seemed like a dream.

Sophisticated Beachfront Wedding Film

Weddings truly are the joining of two lives: family, friends, hometowns, dish ware (just kidding..kind of). This beachfront wedding in represents that confluence beautifully, with all the charms of the south and the sophistication of New York to fit the bride and groom’s backgrounds. Ashley Poole took some lovely pictures and The Film Poets compiled this cute-as-can-be film of their special day and all of its lovey-dovey glory.

From The Film PoetsThis was a winter wedding in Seaside, FL with perfect weather. The bride’s family came in from New York and gave the most wonderful speeches (all in the video). The photo session took place right after the ceremony and was timed perfectly for sunset.

Seaside, Florida Wedding from Lauren Kinsey

I’m not an over-the-top kind of girl. I like simple and modern and chic. Elegance, but not overdone. So when Lauren Kinsey sent over this seaside beauty that checked every love off my list, it quickly became my favorite nautical wedding Off. All. Time. It graced the pages of our Fashion & Beauty e-mag, but today we’re going in a little deeper; poring through every moment of what I deem knot tying perfection. I could easily stare at this mint shaded lovely all day long, and I’m pretty darn certain you’ll feel the same.

From Lauren Kinsey… I am not quite sure I could ever accurately describe how much this sweet couple means to me. From the very first moment I spoke to Brittany, we just had this kismet kind of bond that neither one of us could explain. If I had a sister, I would imagine her to be someone like Brittany. She is one of the kindest and gentlest people I know.

I loved every aspect of this wedding. Brittany is a graphic designer, so she knew exactly how she wanted her wedding to look and feel. Before the ceremony, Chris and Brittany opted to have a first look to get in some extra special portraits prior to the ceremony. Surrounded by only close friends and family, Brittany and Chris were married in the tiny Seaside Interfaith Chapel. Brittany’s sister played guitar during their devotion, and Brittany and Chris’ youth pastor performed the exchange of vows.

The color palette for the wedding was seafoam green, navy, aquamarine, and ivory. Brittany wanted to keep the florals classic and simple, opting to have lush white hydrangeas to lend to the modern/feminine feel of the wedding. Many details were DIY by Brittany. The reception was set under the quaint oaks on the Ruskin Lawn in Seaside, just steps from the Chapel, where cafe lights gave a romantic glow to the family style tables. Dinner consisted of a build your own taco and burrito bar- inspired by Chris and Brittany’s favorite food and home state of Texas! Brittany also surprised Chris by singing him her version of Ingrid Michaelson’s “The Way I Am”, which she had learned on the ukelele only days before.
